There were mixed fortunes for Ranby racer Nick Dunn in the Max 5 Championship opener at Silverstone International Race Circuit.

Nick Dunn, driving his Gap Signs of Retford sponsored Mazda MX5, was in action on 28th and 29th March.

Rain fell continuously all weekend, but Dunn qualified in fifth position on the first day.

The first race was in very wet and windy conditions, but the 22-year-old managed to move up into fourth position, right up until the last corner when he spun off, and receovered to take eighth.

Race two was televised live on Motors TV with the camera filming from Dunn’s car.

He had a poor start in the big down pour of rain and dropped back to 10th, but slowly clawed his way back to take the flag in seventh position.

Dunn’s next race will take place at Croft Race Circuit on 25th and 26th April.
